3. EAS announces grants to Affiliated Societies to support IYA2009

EAS Council announces its proposal to partly finance a selection of projects
that are officially affiliated to the International Year of Astronomy 2009 and
that are already partially funded but are in need of complementary funding. The
projects need to have been approved already in principle by either the relevant
Affiliated Society or the national IYA2009 committee and the proposal needs to
reach the EAS via the Affiliated Society. Full details have been sent to the
Presidents of the Affiliated Societies.
